BPE Promotion Headshots

Cheltenham-based law firm, BPE Solicitors has announced four internal promotions.

Joining BPE’s existing 23-strong Partner group are Adam Kean, Jemma Jones and Anna Wood. Each has made a significant contribution to their department, through winning additional business, client work and bringing new, or strengthening existing, legal offerings.

Adam Kean re-joined the firm last year from Bristol-based law firm TLT LLP. As part of BPE’s Corporate Team, Adam has a strong background in delivering complex M&A and corporate finance transactions with particular expertise in venture capital and private equity.

Jemma Jones has been a key member of BPE’s Family Team since 2012. She specialises in cases involving children as well as assisting clients with finances on separation and divorce.

Anna Wood has been at BPE since 2011 and has played a key role in driving the firm’s Construction and Engineering services. Anna is also Secretary of the Constructing Excellence Gloucestershire Club.

The fourth promotion sees Peter Knibbs recognised for the second time in 12 months, becoming a Senior Associate in BPE’s Litigation Team. Peter, a Commercial Litigator, also supports other teams across the firm, including contentious Private Wealth and Private Client matters.

BPE’s Managing Partner, Antonia Shield said: “Each lawyer has been exceptional throughout their time here at BPE, consistently showing a commitment to our clients and the firm, often going above and beyond what is expected.  Never has it been more important in these uncertain times to be able to rely on a trusted advisor and all four are exemplars of just that.”
